There's a whole lot of wrapping going on. Here are some different treatments to choose from around the Santa Clarita Valley. Happy wrapping!
As a kid, I never liked playing in mud. Some decades later, I've had a change of heart. Lying on a heated bed, wrapped in mud, plastic and blankets, an eye pillow blocking out any light, I was transported from Balance Point Spa in Canyon Country to a sunny, tropical isle, complete with birds chirping and soft yet festive music in the background. My skin a-tingling, my mind empty of the usual chatter, it was ...

It's cold and rainy outside and the local weather man has even more bad news - a severe winter storm is on its way.
Holidays can be one of the most stressful times of the year. We all have a picture of what our holidays should be like, but often our vision of that perfect Norman Rockwell family runs up against the relatives we really have.

This program was the key for me, and when Fitness Edge Boot Camp founder Cheryl Broughton asked me to help her develop the mental focus portion of the program and teach it, I jumped at the chance.
Vicky Minniss remembered seeing an advertisement of Cheryl Broughton in army pants, a white cropped tank top, and a drill instructor's hat, pointing at the camera as if she was pointing directly at her saying "I want you." The poster advertised Broughton's exercise program, Fitness Edge Boot Camp, established in the Santa Clarita Valley in 2001.
Imagine being a young, attractive woman out on a date with a man you've been seeing for some time. The chemistry is good, the mood is right and all systems are a-go for what promises to be a very romantic getting-to-know-you-better evening.
